Thanks miromiro.


What's the best way to do the destroy targets test on the keyboard? I feel like I don't have enough fingers. I press W+Up+ 0 and that doesn't seem to be enough to blow the trucks up?

You're welcome. icon14.gif


Press Num 9 and Up at the same time. When you get close to the trucks, get the finger off the Up key. After that, make the turn.

If you still don't know how, watch carefully the video I posted above - it might help you. If you won't be able to pass it, we are here for you. smile.gif

Took me months of practice with that go get it right. Don't Try too hard.

You can always go back and redo any Test, Only the High Score counts.

Carry On! icon14.gif

Thanks weasel! I HATE flying especially the little RC planes. The only time I didn't struggle with those was Demolition Man in Vice! Never could get Dildo Dodo though.


Now hopefully I can finish off the rest of fly school.

You might want to change the view for the next two tests to First Person.

Don't use too much control, let the plane fly itself when you can.

Takes time but it is worth it.

VC DoDo is supposed to be the most difficult to fly, from what I've read.
